openSUSE Security Update : the Linux Kernel (openSUSE-2016-1227) (Dirty COW)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 94303

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

The openSUSE 13.2 kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes.

The following security bugs were fixed :

- CVE-2015-8956: The rfcomm_sock_bind function in net/bluetooth/rfcomm/sock.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain sensitive information or cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) via vectors involving a bind system call on a Bluetooth RFCOMM socket (bnc#1003925).

- CVE-2016-5195: A local privilege escalation using MAP_PRIVATE was fixed, which is reportedly exploited in the wild (bsc#1004418).

- CVE-2016-8658: Stack-based buffer overflow in the brcmf_cfg80211_start_ap function in drivers/net/wireless/broadcom/brcm80211/brcmfmac/cfg8021 1.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a long SSID Information Element in a command to a Netlink socket (bnc#1004462).

- CVE-2016-7117: Use-after-free vulnerability in the
__sys_recvmmsg function in net/socket.c in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via vectors involving a recvmmsg system call that is mishandled during error processing (bnc#1003077).

- CVE-2016-0823: The pagemap_open function in fs/proc/task_mmu.c in the Linux kernel before 3.19.3, as used in Android 6.0.1 before 2016-03-01, allowed local users to obtain sensitive physical-address information by reading a pagemap file, aka Android internal bug 25739721 (bnc#994759).

- CVE-2016-7425: The arcmsr_iop_message_xfer function in drivers/scsi/arcmsr/arcmsr_hba.c in the Linux kernel did not restrict a certain length field, which allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) via an ARCMSR_MESSAGE_WRITE_WQBUFFER control code (bnc#999932).

- CVE-2016-6327: drivers/infiniband/ulp/srpt/ib_srpt.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) by using an ABORT_TASK command to abort a device write operation (bnc#994748).

- CVE-2016-6828: The tcp_check_send_head function in include/net/tcp.h in the Linux kernel did not properly maintain certain SACK state after a failed data copy, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (tcp_xmit_retransmit_queue use-after-free and system crash) via a crafted SACK option (bnc#994296).

- CVE-2016-5696: net/ipv4/tcp_input.c in the Linux kernel did not properly determine the rate of challenge ACK segments, which made it easier for man-in-the-middle attackers to hijack TCP sessions via a blind in-window attack (bnc#989152)

- CVE-2016-6480: Race condition in the ioctl_send_fib function in drivers/scsi/aacraid/commctrl.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds access or system crash) by changing a certain size value, aka a 'double fetch' vulnerability (bnc#991608).

- CVE-2015-7513: arch/x86/kvm/x86.c in the Linux kernel did not reset the PIT counter values during state restoration, which allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (divide-by-zero error and host OS crash) via a zero value, related to the kvm_vm_ioctl_set_pit and kvm_vm_ioctl_set_pit2 functions (bnc#960689).

- CVE-2016-1237: nfsd in the Linux kernel allowed local users to bypass intended file-permission restrictions by setting a POSIX ACL, related to nfs2acl.c, nfs3acl.c, and nfs4acl.c (bnc#986570).

The following non-security bugs were fixed :

- AF_VSOCK: Shrink the area influenced by prepare_to_wait (bsc#994520).

- xen: Fix refcnt regression in xen netback introduced by changes made for bug#881008 (bnc#978094)

- arm64: Honor __GFP_ZERO in dma allocations (bsc#1004045).

- arm64: __clear_user: handle exceptions on strb (bsc#994752).

- arm64: dma-mapping: always clear allocated buffers (bsc#1004045).

- arm64: perf: reject groups spanning multiple HW PMUs (bsc#1003931).

- blkfront: fix an error path memory leak (luckily none so far).

- blktap2: eliminate deadlock potential from shutdown path (bsc#909994).

- blktap2: eliminate race from deferred work queue handling (bsc#911687).

- btrfs: ensure that file descriptor used with subvol ioctls is a dir (bsc#999600).

- cdc-acm: added sanity checking for probe() (bsc#993891).

- kaweth: fix firmware download (bsc#993890).

- kaweth: fix oops upon failed memory allocation (bsc#993890).
